We headed back to our local raptor center for an impromtu weekend field trip. The center rehabilitates injured birds and aims to release them back to the wild. Some aren't able to be released, and live there permanently. There are lots of bald eagles, a pair of golden eagles, a peregrine falcon, various owls, a turkey vulture and a few others.
And then we attempted our family photo. We've done three or four this month already, part of our new year goals. So not easy to get five people looking in one spot with reasonable faces and open eyes, but totally worth it (even for the so-so result)!
